According to what I have it is right that Howard's parents were Chester and his wife Mary Caroline Strait. I don't know if one of Chester's children died. His Son Charles Niles (My Granfather) was the 4th child of Howard Niles. He was born 13 march 1875 in Whalonsburg,NY. Charles moved with his parents to Sheburne, VT. Later moved to Burlington, VT and ended up residing in My hometown Williston, VT. of where He died. Charles married 5 Jan. 1904Jessie M. Hawkins daughter of Eugene Hawkins & Jennie M. (Carl) Hawkins. They had 6 children. I can give you the name if you wish. Charles died 20 June 1938.
